I've been out of the audio/'video loop recently. Fool as I was, I have been wasting too much time watching HDTV and DVD's! But, alas, my Toshiba 4800 gave up the ghost, so I broke down and bought the above Oppo. This player has been great so far! However, I have a couple of hookup questions. I have a Marantz 7300 receiver, and a 57"Toshiba HD rear projection TV (very, very, good). Anyway's neither the Marantz or TV have HDMI inputs or outputs. No problem. I've hooked up the Oppo to the TV via component jacks and set the video for 1080i - not as great as 1080p - but pretty spectacular anyways although no up-conversion possible.. I also hooked up the digital coaxial cable and the 7.1 (or in my case 5.1) analog cables to the Marantz. I thought I would be hooking up these analog cables only so that I can listen to my DVD Audio discs. But I have since heard that I should be listening to all Blue Ray material through these analog cables as well, because the Oppo converts Dolby True HD and DTS-HD Master Audio internally and outputs it through the analog cables. My question is - is this true, and will it give me better sound than going the traditional Dolby/DTS digital coaxial cable route?
